The common features of the WebHost includes CMS functions such as articles, content pages, site search, contact forms, FAQ section, and a lot more. It also provides an admin-defined side menu columns which can be customized down to the individual link for access by clients as well as the admin.

Steps to Setup Web Hosting Project:

  • To run this project, upload everything in the WebHost file directory to your host server. Note: keep the same directory structure that it came with.
  • Allow and set the following permissions:
    -> chmod 777 webhost (this is the root directory of WebHost)
    -> chmod 777 includes (this is the includes directory in the WebHost directory)
  • Then, open up a web browser to the website where WebHost will be and go to the first_run.php page: www.your_domain.com/first_run.php.
    For the next steps, the installation wizard will guide you.
  • After you’re finished with the wizard, rename first_run.php to first_run.php.bak so that no one can execute it again. During this step, you may as well move it to a directory out of the public internet directory for extra security.
  • If you need to reconfigure  WebHost again, just copy first_run.php.bak back to the WebHost root directory and rename it back to first_run.php.

Note: first_run.php is used for installing Web Hosting Project on web server. If you’re using localhost on your computer, you don’t need to rename it.
